His critics called him a liar. His supporters saw him as transcending race relations. In 1977, following the airing of the mega hit television mini-series Roots, its author, Alex Haley, became America's newest "folk hero."

His book was on the Times' Best Seller's list for months, and won the Pulitzer Prize. His story had captivated a nation and then the world. From Idaho to Israel, it seemed everyone was caught-up in "Rootsmania."

Alex Haley, the ghostwriter behind The Autobiography of Malcolm X, was on his way to becoming the most successful African American author in the history of publishing until it all fell apart. What happened?

Based on interviews of Haley's contemporaries, personal correspondence, legal documents, newspaper accounts, Adam Henig investigates the unraveling of one of America's most successful yet enigmatic authors.
